Created Through Passion and Collaboration.

While a global marketing leader at DuPont, Sharon Kelly Hake had a vision of an organization that would bring remarkable women together with the purpose of activating the “Great Dame” in each of them.

With the help of her daughter and co-founder, Heather Cassey, her family, and a steadfast group of supporters, she has taken that vision and created a vibrant community that has impacted the lives of thousands of women.


All Great Dames programs and events provide the following benefits:

  • Valuable, authentic relationships
  • Synergy with others who are changing the world for women and girls
  • Personal growth and leadership development
  • Cross-generational inspiration
  • Friendship
